Judge rejects dropbox challenge in GA


NewsmaxAn attempt by Georgia Republicans to eliminate absentee drop boxes used for early voting in the state’s two Senate runoff elections was scrapped by a federal judge on Thursday.

Fox News reports that a federal judge in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Georgia dismissed the case brought by the 12th Congressional District Republican Committee. Chief Judge Randall Hall ruled the plaintiffs didn't have standing and that courts shouldn’t change election rules so close to an election.

And again we have the judicial dance. No standing because no injury yet; too close to the election... and after the election, no standing unless it would change the results, and too late because you waited until you after the election when you would have standing. Courts just don't want to touch these issues.

Unless they are brought by Democrats and the SecState settles.
